    Location of the hotel is very good. Directly on its own beach. Beach chairs at the pool, as well as on the beach are abundantly available. The beach chairs should partly be renewed, since these broken or getting very old are.

We had early october 2013 two weeks all inclusive in a bungalow room. Initially there were many french guests later nearly only german, however, the average age of about 60.

    In october there was no german activities and care more. There is a small with seawater pool - we never used it. The beach was cleaned regularly, but also considerable wear phenomena on the beach chairs and the two showers to see. For drinks at the beach and at the pool there was only one bar available - enough for the number of guests and the staff was very efficient, so that almost never queues formed.

    The sunloungers at the beach are without charges, towels are without a deposit. The staff we always very friendly and accommodating met. Wishes they reacted immediately (the desire for a boxübertragung they tried hard to realize, but the technical possibilities failed). The staff spoke throughout good to very good german.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    There was three main meals always buffet and it was (almost) everything. About taste can be known not be argued: us the food tasted excellent - on a qualitatively high level. There was only one main restaurant - but for the size of the hotel enough and never crowded. At the pool there was lunch alternatively a small selection: salad, vegetables, side dishes and mostly 2 sorts of meat. Empty plates were quickly refilled; tables quickly for new guests presented; used table-ware was constantly cleared: the staff here was above average efficient and friendly. The all inclusive drinks were of 'usual' quality.

    We had a bungalowzimmer with setting bed and therefore 2. plenty of space. There was a hair dryer, a refrigerator and a flat screen tv with 4 german channels. Our room was one of the 'renovated' and was so old and worn out and had no outlets in the bathroom - but it was very clean!

    The lies at the edge of town from Heraklion, on the fine sandy beach of ammoudara. Along the main road are several restaurants and shops. The transfer to/from the airport is circa 30 minutes the beach is very flat, one can very far into the very shallow water. However, there is a small offshore reef full of sea urchins, the from and to resolve and the direction of good will. We had all-inclusive and so little interest in the urban nightlife.

  • October 2013
The hotel is approximately 45 years old, consists of individual bungalows and apartments. Everything is well-kept and the old trees is worth seeing. The building, with the dining room and the bar is right on the beach. The pool is very old and if you are not flexible and sporty is, has problems to come again out because of the short ladders. Also, of course, not heated. The lawn is partially festgetretener floor, lawn was once. The stairs to the beach has no railings and older people or parents with buggies also bad in the dining room, everywhere stolperfallen and ... a bit of good. Also nice. On the patio as well, the lighting was a glaring spotlight, no atmosphere or cosiness causes. No candle, no flowers, everything was a bit bland. And the moldy shower on the beach is an impertinence. As also helps the very efficient and friendly staff at the bars and in the dining room was not more. read hotel review

    Almost always good, but only almost. Often cold and Gulasch is often gristly and stringy. Little choice at the fresh fruit. But it isn't a luxury hotel, as one it rather in the Turkey finds. The drinks must the entrance had to be tapped, but tasted. Cocktails are also offered, but i can't rate. It will also cretan specialties, such as thick yogurt, in syrup floating cherries, salads and so on. And always there was ice cream, also at the pool bar. For children a glory! Otherwise, one becomes well full and the selection is also sufficient.

    It is boul and archery offered, otherwise, there is deep silence, no music, no hype. So rather for older people A tiny playground with a swing and a small slide is been sighted, as well as a small pool for the recent, unfortunately in the blazing sun. Towels were free of charge. A shower was at the pool bar, as well as a toilet, for both sexes, rather not so nice.

    Very good, very fast, despite often obvious close personnel situation, especially at the end of the season. Almost everyone is very friendly and hard-working. It is clean and small works of art from the towels from the cleaning fairy gezaubert. At the reception they spoke good german and there is no reason to complain. Internet at the reception is free. Books you can also borrow. Childcare shall also take place.

    Amoudara is a zersiedelter suburb of Heraklion, a street with shops, restaurants and hotels were available, also a good and regular bus services run to Heraklion is available. Who loves nature and gladly through the green hike, is conceivable in the wrong place. There were just long walks possible or rent a car to the very beautiful corners of the island once to meet. But the power station at 3 kilometer distance, right on the beach is really not the, which one in the vacation dreams of. The stinking schwerölschwaden drag over the country. Unhealthy feinstäube is probably also at home.

The Kreta Beach is a beautiful resort right on the beach and only 15 minutes away from the airport Heraklion (no aircraft noise). We had a wonderful vacation and problems at the beginning (we had the misfortune to be moved) could we our stay much enjoy.

    We didn't use the pool, here there was a beautiful sandy beach. The entertainment was bad, since only french, these but we knew before and felt here didn't expect. Unfortunately the entertainers only french guests friendly. If you in the area met you were ignored. They were however in the evening in front of the restaurant, you could be friendly. Here we are used to different things. Beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels at the beach and at the pool free and sufficient.

    Close to the beach. Beach is very clean and the sea was clear. Ideal for relaxing. The good location enables many excursions directly from the hotel and after Heraklion you in a few minutes. Small shopping street in the town with the typical souvenir shops and beautiful taverns. Shopkeepers very friendly and not pushy.

Each year we have been abroad two days of problems with the stomach, as we german the local cuisine are not used. Tips were not expected, it was pleased but really everyone on this. The staff filled always immediately everything and the tables were very, very quickly cleared away.
